This recipe originated from my sister who got it from her mother-in-law and has been perfected over the course of 40 years. The only adjustment that I have made is the use of melting chocolates because they are easy to use and more predictable (She uses chocolate chips and parafin)
Use only Jif peanut butter and stick margarine (butter will not work in this recipe) and be sure to melt the margarine for perfect buckeyes every time.

This recipe may be reduce in size. I use a professional 6 qt. KitchenAid mixer

These are not healthy food but a tradition at Christmas. by reducing the amount of sugar and making the balls smaller, you get a treat that is a little less calories that mom's original recipe.

OMG it's Tofu Queso (95 Calories 6 Carb) MUST TRY
Very Good 4.3/5
(12 ratings)

I modified this from the Ellen Show (10-05-10). Made it for the Superbowl and put it out with the "other" queso. It ran out first. It's a great faux cheese for nachos. The uses are endless. You can add anything to it... Don't forget to add your chips to your tracker. ;-)

Layered Mexican Dip with Baked Lime Chips
Very Good 4.4/5
(55 ratings)

My dip has all the flavor of the original, but it's much easier on the waistline. I prefer to eat this "dip" with a fork or raw vegetables.

Kim's lowfat jalapeno poppers
Very Good 4.3/5
(58 ratings)

A tasty variation on the traditional popper. My hubby likes these for superbowl sunday. You can also vary the recipe by adding 2 -4 T fat free sharp cheddar shreds to the cream cheese mixture. Also you can use panko crumbs for a crispier coating. Make these at least once before serving to company, as it takes a knack to get them to come out nice looking.

Cheese Crisps
Very Good 4.5/5
(11 ratings)

These are an oven-baked version of the Italian frico. It's just basically thin rounds of baked cheese. One of the cool things about it is that they are moldable when still warm. If you drape them over an upturned glass, they will form a cup that you can fill with anything you like. It makes a really nice presentation for a party.
